The free events help students and interested members of the community understand the academic path that is available via Schoolcraft College and MTU, leading to careers in STEM industries. 

The events will feature volunteers from Schoolcraft College and MTU offering dozens of experiments and demonstrations exploring STEM.  Past experiments and demonstrations included using 3D cameras, the ballistics car that is propelled by only a ball, fluorescent rocks, how hovercraft work, how many nails can be balanced on a single nail head, vortex cannons and wind energy, just to name a few.
